    This is outstanding tonal control and a lovely portrait too.

    Some recent model shots:

    Model # 1: Haley














    Model # 2: Pixie


    Model # 3: Rachel





    A bit sillier (model 4: JoJo, the African Grey Parrot, with Haley)








    Shot mainly with 75 lux, but also Canon 100 mm f/2, both stopped down to f/2.8-f/4

    Re: Fun with the Leica M Monochrom

    Some portraits taken tonight at my Rotary meeting (Rotary Club of Bakersfield Twilight) with a 2012 camera using a 1937 lens in a 1932 building. Leica M Monochrom auto ISO (varies between 320 and 3200) with 1937 Carl Zeiss Jena 5cm f/1.5 Sonnar wide-open with yellow filter. As always, minimal post. Gotta love that Sonnar bokeh!!!

    Back with the Luxochron. By my latest count I actually own eight 50mm lenses that are made for or have been adapted for a Leica M.

    Woody,

    Looks you have a good Sonnar example as well. I've only got four 50s myself (three for Leica). The 1937 Sonnar, a 1963 Jupiter 3 (outstanding copy), a brand-new Summicron (non-APO) and then a Canon EF 50 /1.4.

    Okay, my Monochrom sensor is officially filthy. Time for a serious cleaning. ISO 320 and Pull 160, 1937 Carl Zeiss Jena 5cm f/1.5 Sonnar with yellow filter.

    Re: Fun with the Leica M Monochrom

    Tried some architectural shots whilst visiting my family in Munich :

    Part of the main Hypo Bank HQ which is currently undergoing a complete sanitation :



    A small part of the two Glass towers that were built only a couple of years ago but often photographed :




    And finally, a shot of the "Allianz Arena" : (As with the other two, no editing that is worth mentioning)

    Re: Fun with the Leica M Monochrom

    More odd lenses. this time a 5cm Nikkor-S (Contax mount) f1.4 with a Contax to Leica adapter that I found on ebay (the focusing helicoid for the Contax was on the body, not the lens, so this is a complex adapter). This lens does much better at close focus than infinity, where there is all kinds of junk going on in the corners. The lens is from the mid-1950s.

    Another. This thing does draw very nicely and has appealing (to me) bokeh.

    Re: Fun with the Leica M Monochrom

    Another odd lens. This an 8.5 cm f2.0 Carl Zeiss Jena Sonnar from 1937, also in Contax mount with a modern copy of the adapter referred to above. The mount had a slight ding which caused serious hassles fitting it to the adapter. After fussing with it on and off for a couple of months I finally got it working this week. The focus cam is not correct for Leica so the rangefinder is only accurate at close focus (1.15 m) but is extremely accurate there. This with an M so I could use the EVF to focus and converted. This is a sensational charismatic lens, especially given that it is 75 years old.

    Very interesting images, Woody. I really do love how the Nikor and the Sonnar draw, and the bokeh is particularly good with those two.

    That lens certainly has some magic. But the older lenses seem particularly suited to Black and White imagery.

    Love it! The signs in back should have read "To The Left" instead of "To Let"...that would have said it all...LOL!

    Ashwin, Asiafish, Woody and others, simply stunning and inspriational work with the Monochrome. All nicely done. I espcially like the imagery with the old Sonnars and other assorted lenses. The MM lends itself to many different looks, part due to post processing, part the lens and part the camera/sensor. Very interesting to say the least.

    Happiness is a clean sensor! Interstate 5 North of Santa Nella, CA. Vista point sadly had more trash than vista.

    M Monochrom at ISO 320, 35mm f/2.5 Summarit-M with light red filter, minimal post.

    I really like this. Looks like it should be the cover for an unreleased 1965 Beatles album.
